WEST CHICAGO – A West Chicago grocery store has sold more than produce recently; it also sold a grand-prize winning ticket worth $800,000 in the Lucky Day Lotto drawing.

The winning ticket was purchased at La India Grocery, 653 Joliet St., and matched all five numbers – 8, 19, 30, 43 and 45 – in Thursday's midday drawing. The winner has yet to come forward.

For selling the winning ticket, the retailer will receive a bonus of $8,000, 1 percent of the prize amount.
